The most common reason for calling emergency roadside assistance services during the cold fall or winter months is when your car doesn't start because of battery failure. When operating during freezing temperatures, a battery in good condition would provide about half the output than if the battery were operating during optimal temperatures, around 80 degrees.
Because vehicles are much more technologically sophisticated than they used to be especially in terms of computer controls and electrical components it is very important to make sure that a qualified service technician can diagnose battery issues and replace damaged batteries. When it comes to a car that doesn't start, issues other than a bad battery could be the culprit... The problem could possibly be loose or corroded wires or connections, loose alternator belts, a faulty alternator, or even extra drain on the electrical system caused by a bad component! All of these can appear on the surface to be symptoms of a weak or bad battery even though that may not be the case.
Our service technicians can expertly diagnose battery problems, and let you know if you need to replace your battery.
